Gila Monster

Once again, a Gila Monster visits our yard. We thought it best to move him along so the dogs wouldn't see him. We've heard if they bite onto a dog they won't let go unless the dog drops the Gila onto his legs on the ground. I'm sure my dogs would follow thes instructions!
Actually, I find it hard to believe a person would be calm enough to place him on the ground once he is attached to you.
We just stay our distance and take pictures. They are sooo prehistoric looking.

Scott squited him with water and instead of moving out of the yard, he climbed the wall.

We let him be and after a few minutes he climbed down and finally left.

Now that Fall is approaching I guess we won't see him until spring.
